Just subscribed as well. Very rare to see an actual semi scale looking and functioning harrier.

Good luck bud!

To be totally cool it will have to tranission to forward flight.

It is going to be just like the real harrier vertical take off and landing and regular forward flight It's not going to be easy I have alot of brainstorming to do

Yeah, that vid (while being cool and all), is definitely not what I was referring to when I said "semi scale looking and functioning". Does it even do forward flight?

Seeing a dollar tree foamboard Harrier that is even just slightly scale but functions in the VTOL area with forward flight (obviously), would be a beautiful thing indeed.

This would be fantastic - best of luck in making it work.

It simply amazes me how many seemingly impossible things have been accomplished in RC and the rest of life simply because someone persevered and made it happen.

I like your idea and wish to subscribe to your news letter. Either you're building it in a doll house or that plane is going to be huge.
